Overview

About the property

House w/ AC, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-11)

If you often dreamed of a relaxing lakeside getaway for a couple of day or longer, picture yourself sitting in a Pinecrest Lake Golf and Country Club home with family or friends while enjoying the view of Pinecrest Lake. Just staying in Pinecrest is a vacation in itself. This is a great location in the heart of the Poconos and you can walk to the lake, hiking trails, marina (signed waiver for use of a kayak and canoe) within 5-10 minutes plus you are close to activities outside Pinecrest.

This is a four season home and the house is surrounded by tall pines and mountain laurel with a view of the lake from the Sun/Game room and the deck. Every possible need seems to be taken care of--comfortable seating and beds, fully equipped kitchen, WiFi, Weber Grill, pet friendly (see details). It is my intent to create a warm, welcoming and comfortable mountain home. Children love the Snoopy and Friends Bunk Bedroom; Sun/Game room with lake view; 40' Smart Samsung TV with DVD in Living Room. The cottage is surrounded by pines, oaks, mountain laurel, ferns and provides a beautiful and peaceful place to stay. You are about 150 feet from the 77 acre spring fed lake. It is a short stroll to the hiking trails along a brook, lake, beach, marina and other amenities. The cottage provides comfort, style and convenience and is perfect for vacationing and/or entertaining for one or two families.

Walk into a large welcoming foyer with storage compartments for coats, hats, boots, luggage, etc. Cathedral ceilings, skylights, lighted ceiling fan, wood plank flooring. A wood burning stone fireplace accents the living room's conversation grouping of furniture: queen sleeper sofa, love seat, swivel chairs, ottoman, and a bean bag chair. The TV, DVD, stereo are located opposite the fireplace and one just has to swivel the leather chairs for easy viewing.

The fully-equipped kitchen offers guests many upgraded amenities: ceramic top range, side by side refrigerator w/ bottom freezer and ice maker, cookware, over the range microwave, dishwasher, Keurig and coffee maker plus more that are needed to cook their favorite meal. Twelve place settings of Pfalzgraft dishes and glassware are provided. In the corner of the kitchen area is a cushioned booth for cozy and comfortable place to eat, do a crossword puzzle, etc or you can sit at the breakfast bar counter with seating for four. If you choose to cook outside, fire up the Weber grill on the deck and enjoy the view of the lake.

The Sun/Game Room has French Doors that close for privacy and it becomes a multipurpose room with its full-size sleeper sofa for extra guests and a bookcase with games and reading material for those quiet days or listen to CDs. This is a wonderful gathering area for reading, playing games of just relaxing looking at the lake. There is a table that converts for bumper pool or poker.

The cottage has three wall-to-wall carpeted bedrooms. The Denim and Paisley master bedroom has a queen bed with a private bathroom. The second bedroom decorated in a 'Woolrich Bear' theme has twin beds. The Charlie Brown and Snoopy bedroom has sturdy and functional bunk beds with an additional single bed for relaxing or sleeping. All bedrooms have a TV and DVD Players. Adjacent to the bedrooms is the second bathroom with a tub and shower. A stacked washer/dryer is conveniently located in an insulated closet off the bedrooms.

There is a one car garage which provides convenient sheltered storage for your car, bicycles (2 trail bikes are provided), chairs, children's sand toys, and in the winter ice skates (some sizes), etc. There is plenty of parking in the circle driveway and in front of the cottage. Remember while staying our Pinecrest Lake cottage, you are only a short walk to the hiking and cross country skiing trails, the marina (canoe and kayak are provided with life jackets), beach and only 150 feet to the 77 acre lake so you can leave the car at the cottage while enjoying Pinecrest's amenities.

If you want to venture outside Pinecrest, it is only a short distance to Camelbeach, Mount Pocono, Mt. Airy Casinos, Stroudsburg, Tannersville or Delaware Water Gap provide many different venues for fun: movies, museums, outlets, Championship Golf, water-park, rafting, gift and specialty shops, great sightseeing and a selection of restaurants that range from gourmet cuisine to casual and affordable dining. In the winter you are about 15 miles Camelback or Jack Frost/Big Boulder for downhill skiing, snowboarding and tubing for every skill level.

Ideal Location to Community Amenitites

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfect location to the beach access, the marina, walking trails and to the pool. Our boys enjoyed the area and if it had been warmer we would have been out on the lake. We did walk down to the marina area and the beach. The trail through the woods along the stream was a big hit. We saw several deer, geese and ducks. Our dog was in heaven checking out the area and looking at the lake from the windows and on the deck. We played games in the evening and the kitchen is well stocked with plenty of items. There is newer carpet in the bedrooms and the layout is ideal with the bedrooms on one side of the house and the family rooms and kitchen on the other end with views of the lake. It was our first time staying in the area and we will definitely be returning and renting again here. The owner is fabulous and let us rent on short notice.

Great house in a lovely community

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week's stay in June 2008. We loved the house - our entire family particularly loved the cozy dining/sitting room and its great views of the lake. We really appreciated your home's amenities (the wonderful kitchen, comfy beds and chairs, great deck and grill), as well as all the thoughtful details like the booster seat, children's toys, great reading lights and tvs in the bedrooms, and the local newspapers and information on the community that you had throughout the house.

The Pinecrest community was great. My dad enjoyed his morning stroll through the woods and around the lake, my mom spent countless hours sketching the outdoors from the dining room, and our toddler loved the pool and lake (as did all the adults). Everyone we met was incredibly friendly and nice. We also loved your suggestions on where to eat - the 2-2-2 breakfast at the Jubilee was a hit with everyone.

Great property in very clean and private community!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in August. It is a beautiful community, clean and very private. My children spent hours in the pool . I have to say that pool is big and also heated. Property located in very convenient area , just minutes away from main attractions and stores. We like the house very much, fully equipped kitchen, clean property , a lot of games to plays. Each room has it's own flat screen TV. The owner is very attentive and contacts you immediately .We forgot something in the house, Constance responded to us right away and help to solve the issue. My family and two dogs had a great time here. Thank you very much!!! Elina D.

Great Lake Community

  • 5 of 5

Shared this vacation with our daughter, son-in-law and their 2 sons. Everyone had a wonderful time. Fishing, boating and swimming within walking distance. Horseback riding about 30 minutes away. The house was open space with plenty of room for everyone and the kids loved the game room! The neighborhood was very quiet and being able to see the lake was a bonus. Thank you Constance for opening your home to vacationers. We would love to rent again!

Cozy, Clean & Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is our 5th time staying in this home. We have returned many times not only because the owner Constance is wonderful, but the home is clean, well maintained, has everything you would need for some R&R and is in a great location in an amenity filled community. Lots to do! Would recommend this home without hesitation.
